The Sree Ramaswami Temple, about 23 kms from Kannur, is dedicated to Lord Rama. Legend has it that Sage Parasurama, who is said to have reclaimed Kerala from the Arabian Sea, created this temple. With its sculptures, mural paintings and intricate carvings in wood, the temple is a connoisseur's delight. The carvings, which are believed to be 400 years old, depict gods, goddesses, animals and scenes from epics like the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
The annual festival of the temple is observed on "Vishu" (the first day of the Malayalam New Year) in the Malayalam month of Medam (April), and lasts seven days.
